Happy Birthday Eliza

I have been a bad blogger. I haven't had the time, energy or the brain power to sit and blog lately. My hubs is home this week and for some reason I don't feel like I have any more time. I have close to 1500 e-mails in my inbox and I am scared to look at my Reader. I guess I will get back on track eventually.

We have had some exciting things going on during my absence.

Eliza is now 2 years old! Happy belated Bloggy Birthday to my sweet lil girl! We had a small dinner for her on Sunday to celebrate the milestone.

Pop's Sweetie!

We used Skype so that my brother and my two nieces could be with E for cake! That is what everyone in the pic is looking at while Eliza chows down on her cake. She tried chocolate for the first time- and I have to say she preferred the vanilla.

Jude turned 1 month old! He weighed in at 10lbs 6oz. I think he was 20 1/2 inches but I am not sure. He is only in the 25th percentile for height and in the 50th percentile for weight.

I promise to get some Jude pics up very soon! It isn't always easy to get pictures of us when Pete is always working on pictures for everyone else!

We are still breastfeeding. We have our good times and bad. I still haven't mastered nursing while lying down. Jude won't latch like that and then milk starts spraying everywhere. I really wish I could get it down because he is up a lot at night. Last night I was up every hour. I think I might have eaten something that bothered him. It seems that a lot of different food bother him. He is a bit fussy in general and so I really try to avoid anything I think might make it worse. Needless to day, I am currently enjoying a diet of chicken and rice.

Happy Birthday Eliza!!!

Don't feel bad about not blogging. We will all still be around. I totally remember those days. I didn't have enough mental energy to blog. Still don't sometimes. LOL

I just only recently learned how to nurse while laying down.

We never learned to nurse lying down. However, I did learn to sleep sitting up!

Happy birthday E!

Oh yeah...nursing is "fun" when you have a baby that seems to get upset tummies easily! I stuck it out for 1 year with both my kids....but let's say my diet was limited too. I finally figured out that if I avoided all gassy foods (onions, garlic, etc.) and all acidic foods (tomatos, oranges, grapefruits, etc.) that it was a LOT better! Good luck! :)

And happy 2nd b-day Eliza!

Happy Birthday, Eliza!!!

And I'm sorry about Jude. =( Unfortunately at this age he may just be fussy at random times, too, whether it has anything to do with what you're eating or not. Hopefully it gets better soon... The first 2 months really suck breastfeeding, then it gets a bit better, by month 3+ you feel so much more set and comfortable.
